I’m still here! Hurricane Sandy came and went, and left disaster in its path. Washington DC was less affected than surrounding areas and NYC, but everything shut down completely for 1.5 days and the winds bought down a lot trees. Suburbia was flooded and had power cuts. Today was quiet as government offices, public transport and most other work places were still closed. Tomorrow, the East Cost will start repairing the damage. Its almost unreal that two days of winds can cause such disaster, but given our habits and their impacts on greenhouse gas emissions, I guess we just have to get used to it. Or?
